Trish relives the night of the party, including her row with Ian and chat with the kitchen staff whilst the police discover that convicted rapist Aaron Mayford now lives in the area. Ellie and Hardy visit him but, whilst he is defensive, he is persuasive as to an alibi. They also learn from Beth that Trish found a bouquet on her doorstep the previous night with a message of hope and from Cath that her marriage to Jim is on the rocks, leading to the identification of Trish's anonymous sex partner and that of the sender of the email. Then Laura, another rape victim, comes forward whilst Mark tries to involve Paul in his quest to track down Joe Miller. Written by don @ minifie-1

Some Chickens Come Home to Roost
17 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This episode sets up a few more possible suspects and answers to a couple questions. We get to know who sent the threatening note. The flowers are still a mystery. The young policewoman (who has secrets of her own) is confronted outside her surveillance area and threatened in sexual terms. It is finally found out who Trish had sex with the morning she was raped. And there is a kicker at the end of the episode. Meanwhile, Mark makes nice with his wife, but he has received a document from a private investigator. He has information on Miller and his actions are going to be interesting. He goes to the Vicar. There's more than this. What needs saying is that we are still loaded up with suspects and some possible red herrings. Can't wait for Episode 5.
